Dynamic Duos #22

Here is my submission for this week's Dynamic Duos color challenge.  I chose to pair up Cherry Cobbler with Crumb Cake and make another Christmas card.  I also used last week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

I stamped and white embossed the snowflakes onto the Cherry Cobbler card, then sponged round the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.  I then lightly spritzed the layer with Vanilla Smooch Spritz, which gives the piece a look of snow falling in the background (in my mind, anyway LOL).  The snowflake embellishment is made using the two smallest dies in the new Snowflake Bigz die, with the smallest die cut at the back.  On the bigger die cut, I white embossed the smallest snowflake and then used a Cherry Cobbler brad to hold it together.  The sentiment is stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and clear embossed.

Thanks for looking.
